It's almost like the feeeling you get when you're working on the Terminators designed to hunt you down.

More drone species! Yay I love the caterpillar-looking drone! I guess the housefly drones are the old model, Abby has a couple of those.

So Slick got the job hey? I wonder what the glasses say the drones are worth.

Although, in regards to their jobs, um, what are they actually doing? It looks like the robots are doing all the assembly work and they're just kind of looking at the whole thing with a mixture of curiosity and confusion.

could be a message in there.
If you smash a system with force, it will always rebuild itself and become stronger as long as there is people around interested in keeping this up. You need to start with working on the mindset of those people and then smash it together.
Or it could be slick and piggy getting a job while mr. handsome devil has his triumph day. yea.

I would assume quality control. Making sure the drones all look in working order and have no physical damages and such.

Also Catadrone (CentiDrone?) is the cutest drone.

Tat usually has the Sunday page either be beautiful or be some big step forward. I don't know what big step this is, but it has a good sense of menace to it. It could have been told in the normal daylies, but the colours help bring out the menace.
I have no idea what specialized task the trilobite-lobster-horned.snake is supposed to do. Having done some light factory myself, I wonder what'll happen if/when Squig brings home some reject-discard drones? And what he will have them do?

I am intrigued by this. On the one hand, Boo to surveillance! 'Nique and Abby will find it more tricky to play hookey.

On the other hand, this factory is interesting. What are the employees there to do, other than throw the occasional switch? Oh, and I am intrigued by the other employees - they almost seem to have a stereotypical diversity quota look. I hope there's more depth to that. Including the new female employee - with Devilcorp pushing the whole gender binary thing so hard, what exactly is her role going to be?

It's really too bad they're surveillance drones because I think marketed as robot toys they'd be a hit.

Or maybe they are marketed as toys. o.o

I was reminded of the henchmen in the first Austin Powers movie. Dudes trying to earn a buck, ending up on the wrong side when the avenging super-spy destroys the evil lair.

For every factory you destroy, there's a family somewhere that go hungry. Not the factory owner, however.
